I Am Thankful My Mum Taught Me To Bake and Cook.
When I was a young boy(only child) I would be watching and trying to help Mum. I loved watching and helping her bake Cakes and Cookies I would get the batter bowl to lick when the cookie or cake mix headed into the oven...the finished product usually ended up in my school lunches.
My Mum was a nurse in a logging camp when you first came to Canada. Not a lot for Nurses to do all day, so she learned to cook and bake for 200 loggers every morning. I remember her telling me they baked 200 cookies each day along with 100's of sandwiches . Each logger loaded their lunch kit with sandwiches and cookies when they headed out for a day in the woods logging.
As a result of my Mum's keen interesting in cooking, she loved to try new recipes. One of my favorites is her chiffon Pumpkin pie. She decided a chiffon pie would lighter after a full turkey dinner(which were famous on their own). Interesting part of this story is my Daughter who lives in Columbus Ohio has all my Mum recipes, so if i forget or lose one I call her.
. We have already had our Thanksgiving in Canada.Almost every Thanksgiving I try and bake at least two pumpkin chiffon pies and tarts
